Small double bedroom to rent in house in the countryside yet 15 minutes bus ride to Durham, with the Cathedral and Castle, the house is a great point of departure for exploring the region up to Scotland.
The house is in a unique position, south-facing, set in the middle of the Deerness Valley. It has gardens on all sides and a vegetable patch, a lawn with miniature fruit trees and neighbouring allotments with chickens. The kitchen and the bathroom are under renovation but they are still functional.
The Guests have access to the communal areas: living room and gardens. The kitchen is available for eating/snacking and warming food (pizza, take away, etc) and tea making. Eating and drinking are not allowed in the bedrooms only coffee/tea/snacks. Cooking is possible, but limited as the kitchen has two electric hotplates.
Interakcija s gostima
I am away for work most of the time, so looking for relax and quiet, when home. I am a very sociable person, but I am pretty easy about interaction, as much or as little as you would like. I have lived in the UK for 18 years so I can offer a wealth of information about the local area (and beyond!). I can suggest day trips (to Newcastle, Edinburgh, York, the Hadrian Wall, the Beamish Museum)
Although we are very close to Durham, the village of Ushaw Moor is absolutely independent in the ranges of shops on offer. Three minutes away there is a Coop supermarket open 7am-10pm every day Saturdays and Sundays included.
There is also a small sandwich deli and a series of take- aways: fish and chips, pizza, chinese and indian are also available and opened til late.
There is a pharmacy, hair dresser-beautician, florist, pet shop and two convenience stores for general items like batteries, household wares, etc.
Please note: This is NOT a Bed and Breakfast, it is me opening my house to guests at an affordable price. And my house has all the features and limits of a lived-in house. What I offer is a homely, welcoming base for your stay in County Durham, but it is my home and it carries my character with it. If you are looking for a client type of relationship, please book elsewhere.

Grown up in an international environment, with a German mother and an Italian father, I love to meet people from all walks of life. I am a mentor at Durham University and support students from all over the world.
I love my house and growing my own vegetables. I have started a small vegetable patch with broadbeans, potatoes, shallots and greens and a small lawn with dwarf fruit trees: plums, apples, pears and cherries.
I love baking bread too and if you are lucky and that day I am baking, you might wake up with the smell of fresh bread and coffee in the morning...
